Please Be Sidewalk Friendly

As the summer is winding down, the department continues to receive calls about bicyclists, skateboarders and rollerbladers on sidewalks in the Uptown area. Last year, Betty Rouse was struck by a bicyclist while walking in the Uptown area. Since then, Public Works has improved signage and officers have been addressing the issue. Recently, Betty Rouse joined Traffic Officer Tom Rechlicz as the department deployed additional signs encouraging everyone to be “Sidewalk Friendly”. The Police Department, along with Public Works and the Chamber of Commerce added these signs as a reminder to be cautious when operating bikes, skateboards and rollerblades.
